Software repositories managed by system applications (yum, libzipp...
whatever) ARE an unified upgrade system, reliable, secure and fast

someone who build the packages, but that someone do not need to be a
developer: almost anyone can build packages (after a period of
training, of course ;) )
And that's why I was asking about whether it was possible to have repositories on the servers. Users of Debian (and its derivatives) could put "" into their sources.list file and there would be a one-stop shop for that distribution to put LibO into users hands. I'm assuming rpm's and other distribution packaging could be setup in a similar fashion. In the same light, Windows users would have a download source for updates.

Would this be a security headache?
Could this work for the average user?
Does this not seem a convenience for the end-user community at large?

Others could mirror this repository, but this would be the "upstream source" for both users/distributions.
Are there other factors I'm missing?
